After the HiPipo Awards that took place two weeks ago, social media was awash with rants and claims that the awards are not free and fair. Among the trending rants was that Bebe Cool has an upper hand in the awards, some said he paid to be nominated as others said he actually owns them.
“How did the HiPipo Bebe Cool Awards go?” Singer Young Mulo posted on his Facebook page a day after the awards. This didn’t move Singer Bebe Cool until last Friday when Sqoop published a Cartoon of him awarding himself. Bebe Cool who had been silent for some time came out of his comfort zone and wrote a long post in which he even exclude himself from any music awards in Uganda and that he was only going to attend and be part of International awards.
When a local media House (TV station) called the singer to comment on the Monitor (Sqoop) cartoon, Bebe Cool was so furious and he reached and extent of saying that all Entertainment Journalists in Uganda never went to school and that they get stories off social media and write about them.
Bebe Cool who said he has excluded himself from local music awards actually submitted for the Club Music Video Awards and he is nominated in the Category of Best Choreography and Viral video of the year with his Kabulengane Video.
